In case you missed it, we wrote about a bear who wandered into Warrington yesterday - almost to the intersection of Street Road and Route 611 - before police and the Pennsylvania Game Commission rescued him.

He came from New Jersey, having traveled at least 20 miles, assuming he moved in a straight line, which he most likely didn't.

His mother had probably cast him out on his own for the first time, reasoned Cheryl Trewella, a Game Commission spokeswoman. And when that happens, bears often travel in a loop in a search of a heavily wooded place to call home.

The bear was tranquilized and taken to a more hospitable habitat, which Trewella declined to disclose.
